“TRIMMING” OVERSEAS INVESTMENTS: J.P MORGAN, AND THE WIDER ...

This article from the Wall Street Journal  was sent to me by Ms. K, and I'm sharing it for obvious reasons. During the course of her visit with me last summer, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Catherine Austin Fitts, outlined a sweeping scenario that, to this day, leaves me rather breathless in appreciation. She maintained that there was an effort under way on the part of the West's financial powers-that-be, and in particular, the Anglo-American component, to retrench back into their North American power base. This view surprised me, for I had been arguing, from a different perspective, for exactly the same view in various interviews on The Byte Show and elsewhere.

In addition to this idea, we explored during our nearly ten hours' of conversation, the idea that 3-d printing was a "manufacturing meme" being heavily promoted by the same power elite in its effort to retrench into North America and revitalize its manufacturing economy.

This, however, would not work in and of itself. And thus far, I have avoided mentioned yet another component of this retrenchment, namely, the recall of capital from the markets of the developing world back into the West. This is not a story I have hitherto covered here, but it is a significant story, and financial advisors in developing nations are well aware of this phenomenon.  According to an August 24, 2013 article in the Wall Street Journal, JP Morgan is beginning a process of trimming and scaling down its ties to foreign banks. In the view of the Wall Street Journal, this is in response to heightened regulatory constraints.

I suspect that the deeper story is that "regulatory constraints" are a convenient excuse to cloak what appears to be a growing agenda on the part of the Anglosphere power elite, faced as they are with a rising global opposition to their unipolar interventionist policies, and a BRICSA bloc intent upon challenging the financial version of that unipolarity:

BRICS agree to capitalize development bank at $100bn

Let us be very clear as to what this BRICSA bank represents: it stands both within, and outside of, the international financial power centers erected by the Anglosphere in the period between the two World Wars and thereafter, those power centers represented by the IMF(INternational Monetary Fund), the WTO (World Trade Organization), the BIS (Bank of International Settlements), and the World Bank.

The establishment of this bank represents something else: the determination of the nations in the BRICSA entente cordial - and yes, my allusion to World War One Geopolitics is intentional, you'll see why in a moment - to avoid entrapment in a Central Powers' alliance of crumbling imperial regimes. Europe (Austria-Hungary), a polyglot confederation of many languages and cultures, bound together by the artificial chains of a common currency, the Schilling....er....Euro, and a multilingual military that looks powerful on paper, but which even the ill-equipped Russians can easily handle, unless, of course, Austria-Hungary calls in the Big Brother...

Then the Germans were warned by their premier statesman, Bismarck, never to let the agenda of the alliance be set in Vienna. To update a bit, never let the agenda be set in Brussels.

And as far as the BRICSA nations are concerned, they are tired of having the agenda being set in Washington, District of Corruption.

The old blocs, in other words, are being reformed, with some significant additions - Brazil, India, South Africa - that are fed up with western imperialism (and India should know) - and they are being reformed along new lines. The old lines counted divisions, tanks, missiles, ICBMs, mirved-warheads and megatonnage.

The new lines count reserves, liquidity, leverage, confidence, and that most difficult thing to obtain: public trust in an era of growing cynicism.

See you on the flip side.

  1. I wonder also if part of this retrenchment involves taking fluoride out of the water. I notice Israel has recently done just so. Harvard has recently published a study about fluoride’s detrimental effects. This type of study would not be public unless it was sanctioned by the elites. If a nation or cabal were worried about being overtaken by rivals in this competitive world, then the last thing they would want is a dumbed down populous. I have read that China, India, and Russia have taken the opposite tact than the anglosphere and are trying to smarten up their citizens with rigorous academic standards for their youth. I am not sure to what extent any of the BRICSA nations use fluoride on their citizens.

    If the US decides to smarten up its citizenry, it will be a herculean task. We are truly a nation of entrenched nitwits.

    1. The active ingredient in prosac is fluoride, which oddly is the same active ingredient in rat poison.

      There might be some blowback if the nitwits wake up, however world wide the internet, or as i call it, operation enter the net, has done that for the curious self trained scholars……and that is , imho planned……these people are very calculating, and I believe have waited a very long time to see this come to fruition, namely the ruination of some despicable people……the 2nd coming if you will.

      Thou shalt not tolerate LIARS

  2. It makes sense for that share of production destined to consumption within Europe & North America to be simply produced (brought back) nearby the markets it is intended for… plus nearby emerging areas such as North Africa/M.E. & Central America… It is happening…

    BRICS have priced themselves out of the unit labor costs/productivity equation through their exchange rate management policies, as they are currently mirred in an inflation spiral they can’t control after years of pumping their money supplies in order to keep their exchange rates aligned with the $/Euro in what they have called a “competitive range”… I don’t feel sorry for them…as they and their elites have brought it on themselves…

    make no mistake… BRICS as a group have no autonomy to detach themselves from financial policies set in the US$/Europe financial centres.

    Individually only a handful seem to have gotten away defying the consensus… Malaysia with Mahathir and a few others…and it is more an individual politician with some “cojones” than a country thing.

    Banksters influence within the SEA brics runs deep through the Chinese Merchant Class that controls banking in those countries…same for a local Latin –US groomed elite…

    i dont see an independent bric agenda emerging until those ties are severed for good…

  3. The Anglo-American house of cards is collapsing the BRICAS are coming together to form their market structure to counter to London and Washington DC. By the way on http://nexusilluminati.blogspot.com today is a story about 9/11 by Susan Lindauer. Also last month on the same website there was a article about the origins of The Big Bang Theory. It seems it was first put forward by Monsignor Georges Lemitre 1927 to31 it makes some quite interesting reading.

  4. Seems to me that the Anglo-American elites are getting checkmated now on a daily basis, Putin’ must be walking around the Kremlin with a s**t eatin’ grin a mile wide.

    Anybody who watched obama’ white house speech would be in NO DOUBT, that this is a puppet, the only problem is, the strings are showing.

    1. “Here is one example of a false fear mongering nuclear threat against Fukushima sent to me by e-mail by someone connected to the Feds: “
      It is dire – the core has breached the containment vessel, breached the floor, burnt thru the rock, is hitting the shallow aquifer, which will poison it – the steam is coming up thru the building – the earth under the building is melting – the building will fall into that hole – on top of those buildings are the 40,000 spent fuel rods that are a super massive atomic bomb if any of them touch one another. It’ll kill the planet. We are days max two months from that happening. Atomic reactions are quite quick. We have one going off that is out of control.” His source: “he communicates with his wife telepathically and also with a rocket scientist names [sic] duane.”
      What they are really talking about is the control of the financial system going out of their control.”

      While the drama of Fukushima nuclear fallout keeps renew itself in the mainstream medias we also have this “high-tech war” going on in Japan’s Sakurajima for the past few years.
      I think someone can probably sink Japan for real, and its the same technology that could “kill the planet”.
      Chelyabinsk too, was a manifestation of this ongoing “high-tech war”. Then you have the joint Russian-Chinese “anti terrorist” military exercise in Chelyabinsk, but before that, the Russian and the Chinese also held their largest ever joint naval drill in the Sea of Japan.
      perhaps all directed at mastermind of these “high-tech terrorism”
      Perhaps Japan is as much a puppet as a hostage to these “terrorists”, the fact the POTUS has chosen Kennedy’s daughter to be the next U.S. ambassador to Japan is a little indicator he’s probably facing the same dilemma as Japan’s.

  5. There seems to be an interesting coalescing of events.

    Capital pullbacks
    Drop in Federal Reseve purchases of treasuries
    Emergency bill to continue government funding after Oct 1st
    Planned shut down of national air defence systems
    Congressman Trent West warning of carrimgton event
    Snowden talking about ‘kill shot’
    Comet Ison approaching, supposed ‘comet of the century’
    Large meteor events in Russia, Argentina and now Alabama
    NASA solar flare warning despite sun’s unusually low solar maximum
    FEMA special requisitions for area 3
    Two nuclear bomber squadrons repositioned (from Gordon Duff, probably unreliable)
    November 14 comet Ison aligns with Mercury
    International power outage simulation on November 14

    If I didnt know any better it seems that a false flag Carrington Event is being manufactured that will shut down the banks for an ‘overnight’ US dollar devaluation.

    1. Johnycomelately,

      Your dot connecting leaves one to wonder. If one anticipated a global cataclysmic event that was intended to be devastating but recoverable, it would seem taking your capital out of the third world might be prudent. Otherwise it could easily disappear along with any records of it. Better to have your capital safely ensconced in an electronically secure first world bank and nation (that was prepared for (orchestrating) this event). Possibly with all banking records deep below ground in a post-cataclysm banking command center that was preparing to come to the world’s rescue with a anglosphere financed new Marshall Plan. Instead of dollar depreciation, how about a dollar re-assertion? The world’s recovery bankrolled by the anglosphere only in US dollars? All other currencies along with their banking infrastructure would be obliterated and replaced by the one global dollar?

      A human engineered solar killsot could be the perfect cover for a global financial coup and possibly a military one as well. How about a military plan to decapitate any recalcitrant rivals as they were busy recovering from the devastation? It might also be a good time to roll out drones under the guise of protecting the world from lawlessness. Maybe drone patrol as a condition of the dollar loan? And the hapless borrowers eagerly sign by the X as the sobbing mobs clamor outside their windows for relief.

      Very far fetched but who knows. As the anglosphere starts to lose its grip on power, you can be sure that they have a plan to restore the balance of power back in their favor. And judging by what they did to punish Japan, the anglosphere’s stratagem will be beyond belief.

      on that note, It seems quite twisted that the japanese were awarded the 2020 olympics. Is it a gift for coming to heel after the fukishima attack or just a sick joke by the elite that the world will celebrate this global spectacle at the fountainhead of its poisoned destruction or… maybe the elite know there will not be an olympics in 2020 so it is just a farce?
